What a grand thing, to be loved!
What a grander thing still, to love!

Love comforteth like sunshine after rain.

One word frees us of all the weight and pain of life:
that word is love.

You don't marry someone you can live with,
you marry the person who you cannot live without.

There is no remedy for love but to love more.

Love bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

"...and we ourselves shall be loved for a while, and forgotten. But the love will have been enough; all those impulses of love return to the love that made them. Even memory is not necessary for love. There is a land of the living and a land of the dead, and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning."
--Thorton Wilder

-Lao Tzu
